Two-alarm fire sends 10 to hospital

Firefighters led multiple residents from their smoke-filled apartments when a fire destroyed a ground-floor unit at 282 Powder Mill Lane in the Powder Mill Apartments complex in Emmaus overnight from just before midnight Oct. 24 to 25. The final fire units were released about 4 a.m.

Ten residents were taken to area hospitals after multiple ambulances responded to a “Level 1 Mass Casualty Incident” called after the fire went to a second alarm. The resident of the apartment unit destroyed was treated for burns and the others received treatment for smoke inhalation.
